The Dragon Is Dancing

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
For many years, all of Jimmie Spheeris' Epic titles of the 1970s were out of print, and because he only had a small cult following, it seemed doubtful that they would ever be reissued on CD. As the years passed, copies of Spheeris' old LPs became increasingly difficult to find. But in the late '90s, his entire catalog was reissued on CD by the K-Tel distributed Rain label which licensed the titles from Sony. One of those classics was his third album, The Dragon Is Dancing, which came out on vinyl in 1975 and made its long overdue debut on CD in 1998.

One of those classics was his third album, The Dragon Is Dancing, which came out on vinyl in 1975 and made its long overdue debut on CD in 1998. This album was produced by Henry Lewy, a well-respected producer/engineer who had an impressive track record when he entered the studio with Spheeris in 1975. In addition to working with Joan Baez, Neil Young, and Procol Harum, Lewy was the engineer on many of Joni Mitchell's best albums. Lewy always had an ear for singer/songwriters, and he proves to be quite an asset to Spheeris on reflective, contemplative gems like "In the Misty Woods" and "Blue Streets." Between Spheeris' heartfelt singing and writing and Lewy's imaginative production, The Dragon Is Dancing never fails to hold the listener's attention.
